What a shitty day! So my bathtub got overrun with sewage from another unit. The toilet would gurgle, then stuff would flow into my tub when people above flushed. It seemed like it had resolved, so I had cleaned it up, took a shower, and went to bed.
At 1:30 AM, I awoke to more gurgling and saw this:
I rinsed that out and went back to sleep. When I got up in the morning there was this.
So, I was heading out to Canadian Tire when I ran into the cleaning lady who lives two doors down. She had no issues, but we called the emergency line and then waited most of the day for a plumber to come.
While waiting, it got worse. Much worse.
Eventually, there was the superintendent, the cleaner who is also an owner, a board member, and the neighbour, who was also having the issue.
The plumber had to take their toilet off to clear the blockage that may have been related to an adorable and mischievous toddler. His mom didn't speak much English, but was very kind and felt bad for all the problems.
She gave us all tea in tiny mugs with tiny spoons and I can honestly say it was delicious and that I never expected that today would involve an impromptu tea party in my neighbour's entrance.
Actually, I was supposed to be heading to curling, but had very little sleep and food, so my team got a spare to sub in. There's another game tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have no issues making that one.
It wasn't all bad as I also got to meet the adorable chihuahua that lives above me and it was the most precious pupper!!!
And I ordered dinner because I ran out of spoons for things like chopping.
I'm capping today off with a silly movie about a ghost on a plane and some knitting.
